Orfeo 55 in Le Figaro today

Logo Figaro

A few days before the first concert of the Haydn and Mozart tour with Magdalena Kožená , Orfeo 55 is in today’s issue of Le Figaro: “For its opening concert, the opus 33 of Auvers-sur-Oise Festival has given prominence to female performers. And not the least. To accompany the charismatic North star Magdalena Kožená in Haydn and Mozart, the Notre-Dame church will welcome no less than one of our best French singer Nathalie Stutzmann, this time as a conductor. At the head of her own orchestra ( Orfeo 55), with her strength and unfailing generosity, she has become the ambassador of the great baroque and classical composers, serving their narrative power and sound inventiveness without any compromise . From Bach to Vivaldi, she has proven that ancient instruments are not always synonymous with elegant affectedness, but can sound smooth with rage, lively with flesh and deepness.”
